Congrats on getting that tune! It is an awesome feeling to pass the fuel stop a couple of more times, isn't it?

My best single tank average was over 23mpg. That was the first journey with the 80e - Jody put it in the truck at a Carolinas PSD gtg that very day.

My summertime avg stays around 22-ish.

Nice, Gilroy do you see any black smoke out of that 80 economy at all? I am looking into getting a DP soon.

I can't wait to get the torque-converter lock-up problem figured out (https://www.thedieselgarage.com/forum...ad.php?t=67334) so that I too can enjoy my new DP Tuner.

Congrats Gilroy, I'm hope'n for better MPG too, but I know 37's will kill that a little.

For now, only a 3" body lift. Some guys don't like them, but mine has been on for sometime now with no problems. I check the body bolts and body mount area every few months and I have not had to tighten any bolts and have not had any cracks in the body mount area to speak of.
